If you think this round stone on a rocky section
of a largely verdant hill in China's Guizhou
Province looks like an egg about to be laid by the mountain,
you are dead right, because this IS a stone egg bred by the
According to the observations of the people
living in a village called Guruzai (姑鲁寨) that has been established
next to the hill for a thousand years, the hill lies a stone
egg in every 30 yeas. One of the evidences is that each family
in the village has at least one egg in household collection.
But since 1999, the hill enters a high production period
with 5 eggs produced in March 1999, May 2003, June 2005,
March 2007 and January this year.
Now less then half a year from the latest stone
birth, the hill is heavily pregnant again and about to give
a birth to a new stone baby soon.
Maybe the Mother Nature feels that it is unfair
for China to rely on other countries for natural resources
and to endure some unscrupulous international corporations'
price extortion and industry espionage, so it's decided to
work overtime to increase its productivity.
